Morehead State junior Nick Wilkins has been named Ohio Valley Conference Men's Golfer of the Week, garnering the Eagles' first individual recognition of the fall season.

"Nick is very deserving of this honor," said head coach Matthew Martin. "I am looking for him to take the confidence gained from this and keep progressing with his game."

Wilkins emerged from a field of 88 as medalist of the NKU Fall Classic last Monday, picking up the first tournament win of his three-year career. Wilkins was the only golfer among the 14 competing schools to conclude the tournament under par, shooting 70-73-69 over the two-day event.

The Eagles return to competition on Oct. 2, taking part in the Hummingbird Intercollegiate in Sapphire, N.C.
